What you'll do
We'll explore hidden gems of the old town "Junno" made of wonderful narrow streets, vibrant squares, churches and lovely spots from where you'll have an amazing view over the ancient town and on the coast. Going down 86 steps you'll visit with me the amazing Holy Shrine, where the Archangel Michael appeared in a natural cave in the V Century. After having experienced the Shrine, you'll walk through the town's streets to get to a family run cheese factory where we'll learn how the famous Mozzarella and Caciocavallo cheese are prepared. Having the opportunity to experience firsthand the traditional method of mozzarella cheese making, you'll be provided with gloves and aprons to make your own braided cheese and mozzarella knots! After so much work, we'll taste those fresh cheeses and some excellent local wines in a typical wine shop: a great selection from the Puglia's five main wine districts, strongly anchored to typical grapes that characterize the productions...Cheers! (Salute!)
